On Thursday, Aug 21, the Niners will play in a Poker Tournament.   The golf scores for the nine holes will be translated into poker hands, like four of a kind, a full house or a straight.  Luck may have more to do with this than skill. Three Blind Mice tournament Thursday August 14 -   Golfers will play a low net game and 3 holes will be blind drawn by one of the Pros.  The drawn holes will be deducted from everyone’s card.  Let’s hope it’s the worst three scores and not the best.  Remember, the start time on this day only is 9:00AM.  This will also be an Eclectic play day & there will be a luncheon following golf, during which the awards will be presented to the Tournament of Champions winners.

Get ready for some fun!  Rossmoor Niners' Annual Summer Scramble will be a shotgun start at 8:30 AM on Thursday, Aug 28 on the Creekside golf course.  Sign up now.  There will be several flights with prize money for each flight.  Our pros will make up the foursomes.

There will be a wonderful barbecue lunch at the Event Center in the Patio Room after golf. The cost is $20.  The menu includes barbecue hamburgers, veggie burgers & hot dogs plus all of the trimmings. Fruit salad, potato salad, fruit cobbler with iced tea and lemonade will also be served.

The deadline for sign-ups is Aug 24th.  Please make checks for $20 payable to Rossmoor Golf Club.  If you have any questions please call Lydia Bolinger at 937-7899 or Judie Taylor at 274-1420.


An Interesting History for a Golf Rule


Golf isn't a sport where you can play defense against your opponent, but once you could.  For many years in singles match play, a person wasn't allowed to move his or her ball on the green, even if it was directly in an opponent's path.  A player facing the obstacle, while trying to hole out, was known as being "stymied."

They could either try to putt around an opponent's ball or putt or chip over it. There were revisions to this rule over the years before it was totally abolished worldwide in 1952. 



Captain's Corner


Six months into the season and then we’re into the Holidays!   Time does indeed fly, but not without some notable history behind us.

February 27 opened the season with our First Meet & Greet, a wine and cheese event to welcome new members.  It was a success with 85 participants.

May 1, the Niners hosted Spring Fling, our first at the new Event Center.  Spring Fling is a popular event where both the Niner’s and the 18er’s play together, enjoy lunch and a fashion show.

May 8 we played our first Team Play at our home course, followed by Blackhawk, Contra Costa, Diablo and Castlewood.  We scored and beat all clubs to the #1 spot.  Major win for the Niners!  Next stop, Oakdale CC in August to win the division title.

Match Play was held on June 12, 19 and 16.  A good turn out and another challenge for the Niners.  The winners of Match Play will be recognized and awards presented at the General meeting on July 17.

July 10, another major event, Jamboree, our only tournament where men and women are invited to play.  The final day to sign up is July 6th,  so if you haven’t picked up your envelope, you better mosey on down to the clubhouse.  You will find details on the bulletin board.

Captain's Corner continued...






July 17, General Meeting at Creekside Fairway Room, following golf.  This is an important meeting where the membership will have an opportunity to vote on the amended By-Laws.  Please review them on the website, bulletin board or the email sent to you earlier.  There will be a sign-up sheet for lunch for the General Meeting or you may bring your own lunch.

July 24, First Tee girls will be playing golf with us.  The girls average between 8  & 13 years old, they are awesome players.  There will be lunch after golf, look for the sign-up sheet and come out to support the First Tee girls.

July 31, Tournament of Champions begins.  Look for more details posted on the bulletin board, newspaper and website.

Lots to look forward to, so join in the fun and come out and play!   Meet new friends and mingle with other like-minded golfers!  Carpe Diem!
